BILL SUMMARY For HB23-1125

HOUSE COMMITTEE ON AGRICULTURE, WATER & NATURAL RESOURCES
Date Feb 13, 2023      
Location HCR 0107



HB23-1125 - Referred to the Committee of the Whole


03:04:55 PM  
Representative Lukens,
bill co-prime sponsor, introduced House Bill 23-1125.  The bill updates
the process of changing groundwater well owner information. Under current
law, a groundwater well owner must file any name or mailing address change
with the State Engineer in person, by mail, or by fax. Current law also
requires that when a change of ownership occurs, any required forms must
be submitted before the change in ownership transaction. The bill modifies
these requirements by:
  • removing the in
    person, by mail, or by fax requirement; and
  • requiring any
    necessary forms to be submitted within 63 days after a change in ownership
    transaction occurs.
